A Lesson That Could Change History

De Pree wrote best-selling books on good business practices, and was not shy about letting his readers know where his business values came from. They were unashamedly rooted in the biblical worldview.

Take some lessons from Max De Pree himself via the short (3.5 minute) video below, and discover how De Pree developed his biblical worldview. It happened in a certain place, and in a certain way. This lesson may be De Pree's most important lesson of all. A lesson that could change history:
